Watch Our Mission In Action
Founded in 1996, Maryland Therapeutic Riding (MTR) seeks to improve quality of life and conquer physical, developmental, and emotional health challenges through human and horse interaction. MTR offers high-quality horseback riding programs which open new pathways of healing for children and adults with a wide
range of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Conditions served include: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, neuromuscular disorders, post-traumatic brain injury, autism, ADHD, and cognitive disorders. Riders experience improved self-confidence, strength, balance, coordination, attention span, and language and social skills. The farm is located between Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland on a beautiful 25-acre farm.
Utilizing certified instructors, licensed therapists, volunteers and specially-trained horses, MTR's year-round programs include Therapeutic Riding, Hippotherapy and Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy. In Therapeutic Riding, instructors use the horse as an tool to teach riding skills and reach individualized goals and objectives. We are proud to offer a specialty therapeutic riding program for veteran and active duty U.S. military wounded
warriors and injured community-service personnel
and their family members. Hippotherapy is derived from the Greek hippos (horse), and literally refers to treatment or therapy aided by a horse. It is a highly structured, one-on-one therapy
session under the guidance of an occupational, physical or
speech therapist. Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy offers an interactive process in which a licensed mental health professional, working in conjunction with an appropriately credentialed equine professional, partners with suitable equine(s) to address psychotherapy goals set forth by the mental health professional and the client. Instructor training is also offered. MTR is a Premier Operating Center accredited by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH).
